Craigslist and HTC HD2 refund

14 posts in this topic

Posted

I sold my HTC HD2 phone on craigslist for $120 with 16GB micoSD card. I had no problem with it before selling it and tell the guy play around with it before buying it and it work fine. The next day the guy tells me that it has been locking up and wants a refund. I have no clue why it would happen with it. What should I do about this?

Haha, that's better. Anyway, you should have specified "no refunds" or some kind of agreement beforehand.

Did you write down the serial number? You know, to make sure he's not attempting to swap out the device?

Ignore him, sounds exactly the same as every other scam coming from CL

I don't know why people use that site, I wouldn't

eBay has protection for things like this

Ebay's protection is through Paypal and it is a giant, giant joke.

Never had any problems using it, I bought an LCD screen for a netbook which never arrived, opened a case, the seller had to refund me, took a couple weeks but I got it

Only other time I've had problems was on my first ever sale where a Nigerian tried to scam my PSP sale claiming to want it sent to Nigeria when he lived in the US, and sent me a fake PP email saying he'd paid me

I upped all my security settings to block certain countries and categories and never had a problem since

Say all sales are final, you had the chance to look it over and try it before purchasing it. For all you know, he messed with it and broke it. Alot of people try to scam on that site, deal with it all the time. Just ignore em most likely is the best option for you.

Talk to my friend about this and he said that all sells are final. Does not matter if it breaks or if I was broke when he bought it. Just by him give me the money and taking the phone he except the phone as is. Lanham Act does not apply to craigslist.

In my experience eBay's "protection" is completely useless, if the seller does a good job of conning the Paypal advisor you're basically screwed. And paypal's support staff aren't exactly known for their smarts.

Aye, do not worry about it. All sales are indeed final. The phone I can only assume was as you described it and it did work when you had it. He probably did something fishy one way or another, so ignore him.

You shouldn't have to put "no problems" with the listing, that is assumed. If there were problems then you would list them... ignore the guy.

The only reason someone would buy an HD2 these days is to mod it/install custom firmware. I assume he installed some bad quality ROM and its constantly freezing...
